Zetterberg could be one of the better 3rd-line centermen in the league. We could roll Larkin-Nielsen-Zetterberg-Sheahan down the middle. But that won't happen. Because Red Wings.

Yea I hate seeing projected lines with him on the top line. He would be much more effective on the 2nd line. He isn't a top guy anymore. Slotting him lower could prolong his career as well.

STILL AVAILABLE!!  :devil:  :nhl:  :w00t2:

I have zero problem with Cleary playing in Grand Rapids. The only reason he played as long as he did in the NHL is because he worked harder than those around him. He was never the most talented guy so the younger players can learn from that.

I'd say it was about the right time for him to hang em up. Congrats on a good career. Hall of fame worthy? I'm kinda on the fence with him imho...

Congrats on a great career Brad! But no I don't think he is HOF worthy. He didn't dominate long enough and only played 15 years.

If the roster stays as is we basically replace Datsyuk and Richards with Nielsen and Vanek. Vanek I think is the wild card. If he has a 20-30 goal season we may be a little better but I'm thinking it's gonna be worse. Datsyuk did so many things that don't show up on the score sheet.

NHL.com projects the lines to look like this btw.

Henrik Zetterberg - Frans Nielsen - Gustav Nyquist

Tomas Tatar - Dylan Larkin - Justin Abdelkader

Andreas Athanasiou - Darren Helm - Thomas Vanek

Drew Miller - Luke Glendening - Riley Sheahan


Danny DeKeyser - Alexey Marchenko

Brendan Smith - Mike Green

Niklas Kronwall - Jonathan Ericsson


Petr Mrazek

I'd rather see Vanek on Larkin's wing than Abby.
